The prophet Jeremiah had a message from God for the people of His time which was most unpopular.
His message was that people were living far from the knowledge of God and they needed to return to the truth of God's revealed Word, which had been delivered to them in the past.
If they did not return judgement would come.
But the people preferred to listen to the 'prophets' who told them what they wanted to hear.
There is a definite parallel with the day and age in which we live.
Nobody wants to listen to God's truth which was manifested to men in the life of the Lord Jesus Christ which is recorded for all men everywhere to read.
But everyone is keen to hear the latest song or read the latest book(blog) or listen to the latest 'academic' who promotes sin, rebellion and unbelief.
If we continue this way-------------JUDGEMENT!!!
